The first official Baltimore Ravens depth chart has been released. The obvious eye-opener, Lamar Jackson at third-string where Robert Griffin III is the back-up.
Other things to notice:
- Breshad Perriman is the fifth receiver on the roster, above both rookie receivers Jordan Lasley & Jaleel Scott.
- Tim White also above both rookies
- Though Bronson Kaufusi has been mobilized to rush linebacker in certain packages, he is placed as the third-string defensive end
- Tim White is the starting kick return and punt return specialist. Barring any big changes, it feels the Ravens depth chart is set 1-6.
- Orlando Brown Jr. as the back-up right tackle, with James Hurst being the starter
- Brandon Carr being ranked as the starting cornerback, opposite Jimmy Smith. This looks strange as Marlon Humphrey has received nearly all first-team reps. Don’t worry though, Ravens beat writer Ryan Mink gives clarity to the situation. “Veteran cornerback Brandon Carr is listed as a starting cornerback opposite Jimmy Smith with 2017 first-round pick Marlon Humphrey backing him up,” Mink writes. “While Humphrey is an up-and-coming talent, the dependable Carr has never missed a start in his 10-year career.”
- The first-team offensive line is set and unsurprising. All Ravens fans expected the line to be these five from the beginning.
